    road conditions show some new openings. anyone know if the roads that are now open, make the trip worth while? titus is still closed - I just want to make sure it's all worth it

    Hi,

    BicyclePhil and I will be in site 122. We've got rally fever big time, so stop by and let's BS about the Dakar and our Sertões plans. We'll have our rally bikes there, if you're into that kinda thing...

    Cheers,
    Dave

    :clap I hope the park service opens some roads for you all. We got to Beatty Sunday & covered about 500 miles. Couldn't get to anything up high. Most of the south area is passable, if you can find a road open to get to it. Echo canyon, Goler wash & warm springs were great fun. We're headed back to Seattle. Have a good ride.

    Packed and ready to go. Leaving at the butt crack of dawn. TW200 in the back of the truck. Friends GS on my trailer following close behind. If to many roads are closed, camping's always fun. Site 84. Should be dry.

    was told the whole Westside Road which accesses Mengel is flooded under two feet of water. He said you can go thru the Sierra side, but no outlet, and the Racetrack is open now, but no outlet. Lippencott had some slides and is closed.

    Looks like our long trip is a buster. Conditions may change tho' but current as of now.

    I'm looking forward to Echo, Big Dune, and Chloride. Conditions should be awesome! Picking up RAZR at 4:30 to 5 am and heading east. Give us the salute if you see us on the road.
